The pages are beautiful with special slots for pictures. I have no idea who the dour group of four are but the three in the other picture are Annie and Walter Parker with young Fay between them.
I do wish I knew who this saucy minx was!
This is, alas, the only picture in the album that's identified. On its back, in fading pencil it says "1887 - Kissimmee, Florida" and gives three names. The first is completely illegible, the second is James T___, and the third is Walter Parker -- my husband's maternal great grandfather.
Kissimmee (a Seminole Indian name with the accent on the second syllable) was a cow town. As late as the 1950's Florida had more cattle than Texas, believe it or not.
These three look like fellas in a saloon, waiting for a fight to break out. Look at the rakish tilt of Walter's hat!
Looks are deceiving. Walter went on to become a respectable business man and owner of a big hotel in Tampa.
Here are some more pictures from the pink plush album.
